Pumpkin Patch a Smash Hit!

Newmanistas and their friends had a sunny, temperate morning this past Saturday to enjoy the Pumpkin Patch. 70+ people carved and decorated pumpkins and took home beautiful wreaths and scarecrows.

Event organizer, Becky Friesenhahn, thanked her team members:

YOU ALL WERE AWESOME!!!! I am so thankful for everyone's help on Saturday! I could not have done this with all the great help and cooperation from everyone! It was fun making the scarecrows and then seeing it all come together on Saturday!

There were 135 pumpkins for the occasion. Now there are only 18 along with just 5 scarecrows. These are available at the Friesenhahn home (2405 Altura - look for the Chamizal-size flags). The pumpkins are just $3 each and the scarecrows are just $15 each. You don't need to ring the doorbell. Just put your cash or check in the mailbox. It's the honor system.

A few scarecrows and pumpkins still need homes for Halloween
